More Trouble for the Chalabis

by Mary

An Iraqi judge has issued warrants for the arrests of Ahmed Chalabi and his nephew, Salem Chalabi. Ahmed has been charged with counterfeiting money. Perhaps Ahmed resorted to counterfeiting money after getting cut off by the bank of the US Taxpayer?

The charges against Salem are quite a bit more serious as he's facing murder charges. If you remember, Salem came to prominence as head of the Iraqi tribunal responsible for trying Saddam Hussein. So who do you think will run the show trial that was supposed to prove to the US citizens that Bush's Iraqi venture was a good thing?

Updated with correction on Salem Chalabi's role thanks to tex.
